Default Toyo R888R on stock Z06 wheels

Is anybody running this tire on the stock 19 front 20 inch rear wheels? If so what size combo works best? Don't think they offer them in the exact size as the stock PSS. I run a replica 19 inch with Nitto 05R drag radial for the track but looking for something for weekend driving. These will be going on my stock wheels. Not worried about rain since I don't drive it in the rain anyway. Also not worried about long tread life since I don't put many miles on the car.

Does Toyo offer the R888R's in a size that will fit the rear 20's?

They make a 325/30/20. That would work!

Yea I was just wondering if the 325/30/20 was too narrow. Hoping someone is running this set-up so I can see what it looks like.

I'm not sure that it IS too tall. I had some wheels from weaponx that were 21/20s and I put a PSS 325/30/21 on the rear and it rubbed, but just barely, so I think the extra half inch of clearance would make it ok, albeit tight.

im going to purchase a set of r888r's in the spring. im either going to bite the bullet and get a nice set of 19 inch wheels on all four corners or buy the rear reproduction stock wheel that is available in a 19x12 and mount the 345 30 19

Yea I have those repo wheels but my drag radials are mounted on them. I guess I might just have to bite the bullet also and get another set and do the same thing you are going to do. Hate to just leave my perfect stock wheels sitting there.

Does anybody have evidence of this size tire rubbing in the rear? If not the extra grip of the R888R may more than make up for the lack of width.

He's asking about the 325/30/20, not 19. The 19s are definitely not an issue, and as I stated, the 21s WILL rub. It's the 20s we're concerned with here

Cobra2Z has the 325/30/20s on his stock wheels, at stock ride height and has no rubbing issues.

They hook great compared to the mpsc2ís. I can actually use first gear with stock power.

How did they actually compare width wise to the MPSS. I know sometimes different manufacturers measure the width different. I am concerned because I am putting down 850 rwhp. Anybody got any photos showing the tires side by side or pictures of the tires on the car.

That's promising. What are the biggest downsides in your opinion?
